Children and Domestic Violence - Louisburg, NC - July, 25, 2019

Domestic violence can have a ripple effect on a family. Along with the adult victims of domestic violence, children and youth witnessing domestic violence may feel helpless, fearful, and question their safety. Children and youth can experience a multitude of difficulties that will impact their development as well as interactions with peers and authority figures. Research confirms that children and youth need responsive services in order to heal and reduce the likelihood for future victimization and perpetration of violence.

These same children are often times the victim in a complaint for a domestic violence protective order, yet are more likely to be the subject of a temporary custody order attached to protective orders and later become the subject of more permanent custody orders in family court. Along with the issue of custody, there are civil and criminal protections afforded to these children.

Through this Children and Domestic Violence Training, advocates and child-serving professionals will receive a 6-hour training to explore topics relevant to assisting children and youth. You can anticipate addressing these learning objectives:

  • Identify the types of behaviors associated with childhood exposure to domestic violence;
  • Practice safety planning for children and youth;
  • Discuss the state DSS policy for working with families experiencing domestic violence;
  • Explore a trauma-informed approach and resources for aiding children and families; and
  • Learn and practice resilience-building activities for children and teens exposed to domestic violence.

This training is free to all regardless of NCCADV membership status
